    I had a G27 for years without a single hickup. Bought a T500. My first one burned through. Received a new base which only works for 50%. (chance of full wheel loss during heavy FFB activity).
    During an inside inspection i saw that the belt has nasty cracks...
    So what to do? Buy a Accuforce DD thinking within long term investment or go for short term going for the upcomming TM TS PC or Fanatec V2
    Spending 2000 euro on a wheel is not done for me but when it lasts for say ten years i would have spend about two midrange TM or Fanatec wheels...
    I really miss the midrange quality...

    Actually the Accuforce is midrange... between Fanatec and Bodnar :)
    I don't regret my Accuforce spending at all. Still very happy with it.

    me neither,
    only hiccup I have is the signal of the paddle shifters crashes easily
    but it comes with a cable that bypasses this flaw
    only thing is you have a wire hanging from your wheel to the back of your wheelbase then
    this is only when using paddleshifting
    and I know a friend who already installed the new 'hub' or how is it called so he no longer suffers from this


    I heared thrustmaster will come up with a direct drive wheel as well
    don't know when or how good it will be

    You could get an OSW. You can get ones that are plug and play these days.

    Get a small mige and simucube. It's really the best option.

    I'm curious how you compare this next to the t500. Keep me posted as this might be useful advice for my brother's wheel choice.
